During the first lease cycle of a rental agreement, the tenant died. Is the co-signer responsible for damages to the apartment, or do the charges revert to the deceased tenant's family members?

    Any claims would probably go against the tenants estate first, then recovery against the cosigner after that. What state/country is this situation in? What are the amounts of the damages? – Ron Beyer Feb 10 at 4:00

    Minnesota (US). Damages nearly $10k. – Marla Turner Feb 10 at 4:05
  • There aren't assets, and thus no probate – Marla Turner Feb 10 at 4:08
